The final performance of the UVic Wind Symphony for their 2018/19 season, this eclectic program features works that have borrowed from other composers or are inspired by jazz and Latin music. With special guest soloists Merrie Klazek (trumpet) and trumpet great Jens Lindemann, the concert finale includes a concerto for wind symphony and jazz quartet featuring Wendell Clanton on alto saxophone.
With works by Shostakovich, Hindemith, Gershwin, Mackey and world premieres by UVic composition student Deborah Baynes and Esquimalt High School student Julian Glover — both commissioned by the UVic Wind Symphony — this concert presents some of the most innovative and exciting wind ensemble pieces written for the genre.
